    Roll Dice...
    4
    Move Dog 4 spaces
    One, Two, Three, Four.
    BOARDWALK. Thats Mine.
    And so are those Hotels of My
    Mind, Heart and Soul
    You rolled Doubles, so Go Again.
    6
    One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six...
    GO TO JAIL
    DO NOT pass GO
    DO NOT collect $200

    SUCKA...





    There was a Time....
    Where..you had the Monopolies of My...Mind.
    And I would watch you play me...
    Time and Time Again.

    My Mind was not Right,
    and My Heart could Not See...
    How Rollin Dice wit' you...
    Would never benefit me.

    But for many years....I let it be.
    Suffering Silently, in the games of
    M-O-N-O-P-O-L-Y
    That became of You and Me.

    Sooooooooo many Times...
    The orange card, begged me to GO HOME
    and the yellow card encouraged me to STAY
    Just a few more go arounds, I thought...
    I'll be okay.

    Everytime I would pass GO, you would Rob Me
    of everything I owned.
    You see....I allowed you to buy Houses All Ova
    Me.
    Houses of Esteem, Respect, and Dignity
    All houses that I didn't realize you had stolen from me.

    Negro, I was home Free
    For your heart was never a home
    You left me f**cked up and Alone.
    To my Mother...I would not pick up the Phone...
    Didn't want my mother to know.

    You left My Heart, on the purple property that
    nobody wants!!
    That cheap shhhit!
    Well son, I stood there one day
    And had me a look around...
    Saw how you owned everything in sight around me.

    I knew Not of Who I Was,
    I knew Nothing about ME.
    You were the worst kinda pain
    A blow I didn't see...
    A kick I didn't need
    A knife
    That my heart bleeds.

    And I have been having trouble sleeping some nights...
    As I collect the pieces of Me
    As I slowly gain back My Monoplies
    I now own the B-O-A-R-D-W-A-L-K you see
    Dummy


    So Step off Me, and Pay Up!!
    Mista Banka
    Mr. High Roller, Real Estate Investor
    Yooz a black Donald Trump, Right?
    Wrong
    Not on My Block
    Not no more
    So Step off...


    Let Me escort you to Jail, my Friend
    Introduce you, to Cell Block C
    Where you have a cell mate named P-A-Y-B-A-C-K
    and he's offered to jiggle ya balls for free
    hmmm...well, it seems like your having fun,
    So, I'll go ahead and Leave.
    Don't you eva step your foot on my BOARDWALK
    Cas that shhhit belongs to ME.

    sweetapplepie - A woman who stands up in defiance of the monopoly we men sometimes can't help imposing is akin to the force of Mother Nature blowing debris from the streets with a howl, burning the fields for a better crop with a blaze or reclaiming Boardwalk with a take no prisoner female ferocity. Whoaa! Namyh

    P.S. - I'm pulling out my Scrabble set right now! Love your work here sweetapplepie.

    Thank you gentlemen...yea, I can be a sassy lil thing, in flo sometime...It's just me releasing some agressions I have, in regards to a previous situation. In their release...I clean my system out, which is good. I have a few more in me....and then I should be good for awhile!
